From the Publisher
“This book is a major Jungian contribution to the literature on sexual abuse. The rich tapestry of different theoretical strands is exemplified by clinical material covering a wide range of problems which forcefully convey the challenges of working with adolescents. . . . This book has much to commend it. It addresses many of the psychic consequences of abuse. There is a wealth of clinical material conveying the immediacy of adolescence, and a breadth of theoretical discussion that reflects contemporary Jungian thinking.”
—Clive Britten, Journal of Analytical Psychology
“Incest Fantasies and Self-Destructive Acts, edited by Mara Sioli and Gustav Bovensiepen, is a most welcome and indeed a most necessary and long awaited exposition of the Jungian understanding and clinical handling of the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents. The editors have brought together papers by experienced analytical psychologists, working in several different countries. This gives the readers an overview of the diversity of approaches which the relatively non-doctrinaire character of analytical psychology facilitates and so helps to make for a sensitive response to patients and to the subtlety of the relationship as it evolves between analyst and analysand. . . . [T]his book is rich in excellent and well described case studies. The observations, intuitive perceptions, understanding and ideas are interesting and challenging.”
—Rosemary Gordon, The San Francisco Jung Institute Library Journal
“An important contribution to the contemporary psychoanalytic dialogue concerning adolescent development and the treatment of psychopathology in adolescence.”
—Thomas H. Ogden, San Francisco Psychoanalytic Institute
“The book revolves around the activation of incest fantasies and incestuous acting out in adolescence, interpreting this phenomenon as a potentially creative and healing regression. . . . This theoretical/clinical thread is elegantly elaborated throughout the book.”
—Alicia F. Lieberman, School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco
"This remarkable book is a significant contribution, both to the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents and to the rapprochement between psychoanalysis and analytical psychology."
—Roger Brooke, Director of Training in Clinical Psychology, Duquesne University
"... A most welcome and indeed a most necessary and long awaited exposition of the Jungian understanding and clinical handling of the psychopathology and psychotherapy of adolescents."
—Rosemary Gordon, editor, Journal of Analytical Psychology
"This book is a useful addition to the literature on adolescence: it is the first serious contribution to the subject by a group of Analytical (Jungian) Psychologists; it also covers a wide range of treatment methods from strictly analytic procedures to group therapies and institutional caring. . . . stimulating and thought provoking."
—Dr. Michael Fordham
